South Boston Sea Wall – Boston MA

Description

Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) workers constructed a sea wall in South Boston, Massachusetts. From a W.P.A. Bulletin:

Designed to hold back destructive water at flood tides, to keep drifting sand from the adjoining roadway and non-bathers from encroaching on the beach area a WPA Sea Wall Project, Columbus Park, South Boston, extends for more than half a mile along the beach.

The status of this structure is unknown to Living New Deal.
